Delivering quality childcare to families in Rostrevor and surrounding areas

Rostrevor College Stepping Stone Early Learning Centre provides a safe, comfortable and enriching learning environment for the early learners of our community. Our environment is one where our educators will build nurturing and trusting relationships with children, families and the wider community. Take a sneak peak inside our centre below...

About the centre

We offer an outstanding, purpose-built centre, where we cater for children from 6 weeks and can see them right through until they start their schooling.

We have a dedicated early childhood teacher on-site, who delivers a comprehensive pre-school program and works closely with the junior school staff at Rostrevor College.

It is this close working relationship with Rostrevor College which sets us apart from most.  This relationship sees us utilising many of the college facilities, including library visits, their gymnasium, ovals, and environment centre as well as attending buddy class activities with the reception and year 1 class.

Through our work with the college, we are able to assist with a smooth, relaxed transition from early learning to school for our children.

We look forward to showing you through our wonderful centre.

Hear from families who have attended our Rostrevor childcare centre...

Warm and caring educators make this centre more than just quality care. This is our second child in the centre and we recommend to other families.

Danielle Frankish
Rostrevor Centre

My son started here 3 months ago, and he absolutely loves it here. He’s formed a strong bond with all his educators, who all show compassion and caring for him. During the short lockdown last year, the staff called to make sure we were ok at home. Their communication is second to none, they always notify me if there is an issue, give me an update of his day when I collect him and call to check how he’s doing if he’s off.

Lucy Monteiro

I looked at 11 different centres before finally deciding on this one. The second I arrived at the centre, I got all the feels. My daughter has been at the centre for three months and I couldn’t be happier. Communication from staff and management is fantastic! I even get a notebook to take home where we can write notes to staff to communicate. She’s always so happy at drop off and pick up. It’s a blessing being at work knowing your baby is being well cared for. Thank you to the amazing staff at the centre, five stars!

Meet the centre director

Hello and welcome. My name is Kerry Shillabeer and I am the centre director here at Rostrevor Stepping Stone ELC.

I have been with Stepping Stone (SA) since April 2017, beginning my journey as a leading educator in the Nursery room and working my way up into the role of the centre director. I have a wonderful husband and have been married for 23 years and together we have two beautiful children who helped me find my passion for early childhood education.

I believe in creating a space here at Rostrevor that allows our children to feel safe, secure, supported and always welcome.

We have a very passionate and dedicated team that is determined to help develop meaningful relationships with families and children. Our team take pride in offering the children a wide range of engaging experiences in a stimulating, safe and nurturing environment that caters to each child’s individual needs and interests.

I look forward to meeting you and showing you through our amazing centre.
